Administrative history

The Society was formed 1856 as the Canada Congregational Ministers, Widows and Orphans Fund; it changed its name in 1873. Its objects were to raise and distribute money for pensions for retired ministers and the widows and orphans of deceased clergy in British North America (later Canada). In 1929 the Fund came under the management of The United Church of Canada Board of Pensions, as part of its consolidated pension fund.
